The current state of our world is one of partisanship. Everywhere there is pressure to align with either the left or the right of the political spectrum. You would be hard pressed to find a news report or commentary that does not have a distinctive partisan tone. How unnatural and absurd to think that there are only two ways to think - a kind of magnetism to either the left or the right!

The definition of “adversary” in Science and Health begins “An adversary is one who opposes, denies, disputes, not one who constructs and sustains reality and Truth.” A fitting description of the outcome of partisanship, adversaries? Not constructive!

What is to be done about this unhealthy atmosphere?

If we are faithful in this, perhaps we will catch a glimpse of what Mary Baker Eddy arrived at:

 that unity is divine might, giving to human power, peace." (Misc. Wr.)
